A laptop design with an integrated projector at palm rest area is proposed. The projector will be hidden
inside the laptop chassis, a mirror can be triggered to pop up and reflect the content from projector to
the laptop palm rest area or desk surface. Coupled with a camera, and using image recognizing
capabilities of the computer, the palm rest or desk surface will work like a touch screen, user will be able
to write on the palm rest for quick note taking.
Aside from note taking, the projector can also work as a second screen of the laptop, showing
information and notifications while the main screen is occupied with other contents.
The mirror will be retrieved by pushing on it when projector is not used, the back side will be flush with
palm rest when the mirror is retrieved to create a clean and neat design.
